[podfic] We Used To Be Friends
"You and me, right Mikes?"
"Yeah, fuck everybody else."
Best friends since high school, if Frank could've chosen a brother, he'd pick Mikey. Then Mikey became a rock star and Frank... didn't. After years of radio silence, Mikey steps onto a stage in Jersey and back into Frank's life.
(Or, the one where Frank is a school teacher and Mikey plays rhythm in The Used.)
Recorded for Bandom Big Bang 2013.
I've been wanting to record something by Ladyfoxxx for ages, because I pretty much love everything she writes! I was a bit nervous about this particular fic, because of the Mikey factor, but I think I came to terms with it in my own way. I find the MyChem boys much more of a challenge to do voices for, but hopefully I managed to give each of them their own particular twist. I think my favourite character is actually Frank's student Dylan, because his pure joy at everything that happens just completely mirrors mine as a reader. :)
Thanks to Ladyfoxxx and Sunsetmog for not minding when I hijacked our Costa writing group with podfic editing and general moaning about this piece, despite that not being writing related at all! It was a unique, but very useful, experience to have the fic-writer sitting next to me as I edited, and to be able to ask her about line readings and choices. :)
